Team News

  • Luke Shaw came off injured in the defeat to Newcastle last weekend and was replaced by Daniel Fox at left-back. However, the former is expected to have recovered in time to play.
  • Gaston Ramirez should return to the Saints' lineup after coming off the bench at St James' Park.
  • Jason Puncheon may start on the right instead of Jay Rodriguez, after a fairly quiet game for Rodriguez last time out.
  • Esteban Granero was forced off at half time in the defeat to Manchester United last week with a knock and may not make it back in time to feature here, so Shaun Derry should come in.
  • Bobby Zamora is fragile player, and had to be replaced by Loic Remy around the hour mark last week. Both have injury worries but are expected to be risked given QPR's desperation for points.
  • Fabio should return to the defence after being ineligible last week.

Prediction

  • Queens Park Rangers are all but out of the race for safety, now 7 points from safety, but with Harry Redknapp at the fore there is still a slim chance of them surviving. Having only scored 4 goals in their last 10 Premier League games, though, the R's need to make rapid and distinct improvements.
  • Since Mauricio Pochettino's arrival Southampton have become a difficult side to beat, only narrowly losing at Old Trafford whilst also beating Manchester City 3-1 more recently. They have Adam Lallana back to fitness now and in Rickie Lambert they have the top scoring Englishman in the Premier League, and they will certainly score against the league's bottom side.
  • A home win might just spell the end for QPR, but a draw wouldn't be enough for them either. They will have to come out and attack Southampton and that could be their downfall. The Saints have the attacking quality to break through most teams and they should score a few here too.
